02032 5 in 1 station compatibility with 06053 extender and 09150TRX hub question

I have a model 02032C 5 in 1 weather station. The 5 in 1 station is about 200’ from the display and all is working fine. I want to add a separate temperature sensor (06002M), 2 extenders (06053M), and a smart hub (09150TRX from a neighbor). The temperature sensor will be located about 800’ from the 5 in 1 station along the same line-of-sight as the 5 in 1 station and display. Ideally, I would like the hub to receive signals from both the 5 in 1 and the sensor extender. I am getting conflicting answers as to whether or not this arrangement will work properly without interference. Is there anyone out there that can give me a definite yes or no on this?

Technically, the signal extenders are not compatible with the SmartHUB, but you might be able to get something to work.

The above description is very confusing and doesn't address the critical distances. How far is the 5n1 from the SmartHUB?  How far is the temperature sensor from the SmartHUB?

Those are the distances you need to traverse with the extenders in order to get to the SmartHUB.

The 2032 display distance is immaterial as it won't interact with anything.

Everything is essentially in a straight line with the hub at one end and the temperature sensor at the other end.  Distance from the hub to the 5n1  and 1st extender is about 200'. Distance from the 1st extender to the second one is about 400'.  And finally the distance from the 2nd extender to the temperature sensor is about 400'.  Total distance from the temperature sensor to the hub is about 1000'.

You're already exceeding maximum recommended distances for the repeaters, which is 330 feet, and that's under best possible conditions.

OK, so what if a 3rd extender were to be put in the line?

That should do it.
